Wildlife overpass

In the 1990s, the government decided that there were too many animals dying trying to cross the Trans Canada in Banff National Park. So they built overpasses just for the wildlife to cross the highway. Some folks thought that was a dumb idea, but since 1996, more than 200,000 wolves, bears and cougars have done so.

In this photo from, a lynx is captured by a motion-sensitive camera overlooking one of these highway overpasses.
